Report: 8 years of Obama vacations cost $85 million

WASHINGTON
As America’s first family enjoys its eighth and final vacation in Hawaii, new estimates put the price tag of the Obamas’ annual trip at $3.5 million or more.

In total, the cost of the the first family’s personal or largely personal travel during the last eight years comes to $85 million – though that is likely to climb to $90 million after additional records are released, according to the conservative group Judicial Watch based on federal government records.

The cost of Air Force One and other government planes as well as helicopters, cargo planes, armored cars, Secret Service protection and advance, communications and medical staff has led Judicial Watch to push for less personal travel.

“The Secret Service and the Air Force are being abused by unnecessary travel,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said. “Unnecessary presidential travel for fundraising and luxury vacations on the taxpayers’ dime would be a good target for reform for the incoming Trump administration.”

President-elect Donald Trump prefers to vacation at his own properties. He is spending Christmas at Mar-A-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, where he stayed for Thanksgiving. After the election, he spent a weekend at Bedminster golf club in New Jersey, which has fueled speculation that it could be Trump’s Camp David.

Nice attempted deflection.

Won't work.

The rate of spending on Trump and family for their excursions is about 10 times what it was for Obama and family.

How do you excuse that? How can you ignore trump's lavish expenditures, and only criticize Obama? To normal people, that looks like blatant hypocrisy on your part.

That pans out to a little over $10 million a year. Trump's 5 Mar-a-Lago vacations in 7 weeks as POTUS have cost $15 million.

It's called shameless hypocrisy and the right embraces it with vigor.

Especially since these aren't vacations and he is actually working at Mar-A-Largo.

Another Lefty Spin On The Wheel of Fail.

Take another spin Lefty for next week's Bankrupt Fake Outrage.

Just as long as Trump repeals Obozocare and builds the Wall.

I could care less of he plays golf every weekday, and travels the world every weekend with his family for 8 solid years. ... :thup: ... :cool:

Report: 8 years of Obama vacations cost $85 million

WASHINGTON

How many times has Trump opted to entertain at Mar-a-Lago? As of a month ago, Trump had already run the tab up to $10M.

For a POTUS who's so hellbent on reducing the deficit, reigning in government wasteful spending and so on, one'd expect he'd consider the White House to be good enough given that he must know that it runs about $3M a pop every time he flies to the beach for the weekend. That his visits there cost the Palm Beach economy millions should further dissuade him from going there so often. Yet it doesn't.

I suspect that when Trump goes to Palm Beach, the only place that makes money is Mar-a-Lago....go figure...

Bullshit, Obama somehow managed to be able to work from DC just fine.

Wasn't taking lunches away from poor seniors to make that happen either.

Trump did more work in his first week than Obama did in the entire 8 years in office. In fact, he's done more work than Obama, Hillary, and Kerry did combined. In fact, he's done more for America than the entire Democratic Party has since 1980. We don't care if he takes time off; if the fake 'left' is going to whine about it though, then we should encourage him to take more vacations. It's a clear sign he's doing great when the gimps and deviants cry about something he did.

He's done more work than all Americans combined since the birth of the nation!

Obama by this time has already passed a big bill - Stimulus.

What the fuck has Trump accomplished legislatively? NOTHING.
